The annual Log Cabin Day took place on Sunday, June 26, on the Old Mission Peninsula. It was a lovely day to celebrate the history of the Peninsula, especially since the event had been sidelined for a couple of years due to that little thing called the pandemic (though we did have a “Harvesting History” event last year).
My Dad’s (Walter Johnson) 1952 Chevy Stake Truck even made an appearance! The 70-year-old truck was used to haul logs during the restoration of the Hessler Log Home in the 1990s (thank you, Dean and Laura, for restoring the truck and keeping it in the family!).
Below are a few photos of the fun event. By the way, Log Cabin Day is a state-wide event, and when I googled about it, our Hessler Log Home is the featured photo on this story at Log Home Living!
